"Bunion" is the layman's term
for a deformity in the first
(just behind the big toe).
There are many causes
for this problem but one fact
is common to all of them:
grow worse if not treated!
"Conservative care goes a long way
in slowing down the progression
of this deformity. It may make surgery
unnecessary. However, if surgery
is required, one must be careful
to choose the correct type of
procedure for the type of bunion
he or she has. There are in excess
of 130 types of procedures.
A surgeon's experience is most
important in selecting the correct one."
